    ok, try another common user:

    named -u bind

    Tell me how that works out. Also, while BIND is running, you can reload the config without restarting BIND with the folowing command:

    BIND8: ndc reload
    BIND9: rndc reload

    Actually let me describe u my problem...may be this might not be the right way to handle it..
    problem is that when i typein i cant acess the site but when i type in i can acess the site...i know its the DNS problem which i am not able to figure out at all...
    i did some changes to the IN A records and i know it take s 24 hrs for the changes to come into existence unless u can manually start named ..thats the reason i want to start named..i am bugged with thsi site not comming up?

    There's 2 way to work around the time issue with changing your DNS.

    restart BIND completely.
    /etc/init.d/named restart

    Just flush the cache in BIND 9.
    rndc flush


    You need to add a user to the system for BIND to run as. You don't want BIND to run as root.

    this is the result of the first query:
    root@tux2:/var# /etc/init.d/named restart
    bash: /etc/init.d/named: No such file or directory

    also after i do rndc flush wht am i suppose to do can i add a user for bind...dont know that too

  7. #16
    Show me the results for the following command:

    ls -l /etc/init.d

    We'll see once and for all if there is an init script for BIND. Also, we need to determine if BIND is already running. Hopefully the following command works ok in slackware. Show me the results.

    ps -Af | grep 'named'

  8. #17
    root@tux2:/sbin# ls -l /etc/init.d
    ls: /etc/init.d: No such file or directory
    root@tux2:/sbin# ps -Af | grep 'named'
    root 6965 6923 0 15:35 pts/3 00:00:00 locate named
    root 6980 1 0 15:37 ? 00:00:00 /usr/sbin/named
    root 7124 1 0 16:18 ? 00:00:00 /usr/sbin/named

    ok, apparently your init is stored elsewhere or doesn't exist at all. Try this command:

    ls -l /etc/rc.d/init.d

    Also, I see BIND is already running twice. That's probably not what you want at all. So shut down 'em both down with these commands:

    kill -KILL 6980
    kill -KILL 7124

    Now that BIND is shut down, we need to start BIND back up. IF the ls command above returned "Not found", then you need to run the following commands.

    groupadd named
    useradd -g named -d /var/named -M named
    named -u named

  10. #19
    ok successfully done the steps except the first step rerutned no such file /directory(ls -l /etc/rc,d/init.d)

    now wht???

  11. #20
    Well, now I assume that you don't have any init scripts. heh. Who needs 'em anyway right? To manage your BIND server, use the following commands:

    1) flush the cache to make dns changes on other dns servers work immediately.

    rndc flush

    2) Stop the BIND server

    rndc stop

    3) Start the BIND server

    named -u named

    4) If you changed the BIND config or hosted zone files

    rndc reload

    And that's the story. If you have any problems, let us know.
